About Armen Yerevanian, MD

Armen Yerevanian MD is an Instructor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. He utilizes functional genomics in multiple model organisms, including the nematode C. elegans, cell culture and mouse models, to study fundamental pathways in metabolism with relation to aging and metabolic diseases. Specifically, he is interested in the physiology of riboflavin and in the function of the flavin dependent enzymes known as the flavoproteome. He is currently exploring the molecular mechanisms behind the lifespan extending paradigm of riboflavin depletion. The goal of this work is to modulate flavin levels and create a dietary restriction like phenotype, promote healthy aging and alter the course of metabolic diseases such as diabetes and fatty liver. He is also studying specific flavoproteome enzymes with the hope of modulating cellular energetics for similar purposes.
